Windows Active Directory Site Costs
Posted on 2013-01-10
I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on the site cost calculation.
For example: I have 3 Root Controllers,
1 = Europe
This is a multi-domain archeteructure so we whave over 50 child domains and 100 DCs.
The Canada domains seem to have the nearest replication topology to some of hte DC's in Europe which is causing some issues right now.
Question: In Site Cost between three Root Controllers, they are all setup to each other in sites and servcies at cost of 10 with replication of 45 minutes.
I have all the rest of the sites setup accordingly like sites in U.S. are setup to one link to the root controller in America.
So the question here is how do i make sure that all the sites in U.S. point to U.S. and etc. But seeing how my root controllers are setup, should I be changing the costs so that the U.S. sites don't get nearest path to a Europe domain controller? Any suggestions would be helpful.
